Orlando officials, if you can talk the talk, ya' better walk the walk and allow residents grow their own food and help them save money rather than wasting tax dollars on frivelous, backwards-minded ordinances such as this, dispense with your anti-vegetartian/anti-vegan attitude, embrace the 21st Century, and allow folks to grow their veggie gardens...Or else, you'll find yourselves living in cardboard shacks underneath highway bridges, in rags, be looking for your next meal from a garbage can!

Oops, that should be (anti)-VEGETARIAN...
Actually, it owuld be great if folks here could reject
animal meat in favor of vegetarian/vegan products,
for the betterment of health AND our Earth's animal kingdom. :)

I do not agree of having a Vegetable Garden in the front of your House. Why do not you have a Vegetable garden at the rear of the house? In India we never have a Vegetable garden in the front of a house and we always have it at the rear of the house.

The front Vegetable Garden will totally spoil the asthetic sense of a house.

I'm sorry but I don't appreciate the patronising tone being used here. Everybody is entitled to their opinion and it takes a very mature and tolerant individual to accept a parallel thought process that's different from theirs. Most importantly, doing courses does not develop aesthetic sense! Coming from a predominantly farming family running a full fledge organic farm in India, we don't need courses in horticulture, gardening, soils etc etc etc to understand the underpinnings and importance...

YES patchy front ended vegetable gardens will ruin the look of a house. A back kitchen garden or even container gardens are much better and viable options.

I hope the Code Enforcement gets a grip and stop harassing the people for growing their own vegetables, whether it is in their front yard or back yard. Good Luck!

in a lot of neighborhoods its against the neighborhood ordinances. most say something to the effect that landscaping must be ornamental and conform to the landscapes around them. its ridiculous really.

We have a "Weed Commissioner" in our town. There are 36 weeds on the Noxious Weed list (including Daisies and Blackeyed Susans). If spotted having any one of those "weeds" in your garden (even in the backyard!), you are notified to destroy it. If you fail to do so, you are warned that the city can remove the weed (even spray toxic chemicals!), and you will be fined. Failure to comply can land you in jail. Ordinance was implemented in 1971. I currently owe $50. And all of this in a county...

I have a BEAUTIFUL front yard garden, vegetables and flowers. I eat from it every day and in this tourist town of Calistoga people stop and take photos and tell me how wonderful it is! How odd not to allow people to do this.
